* In [[Film/TheGreatDictator The Great Dictator]] Hynkel's office is gigantic. He uses this to his advantage by forcing Napaloni to cross this massive space as psychological intimidation. [[CrowningMomentOfFunny Napaloni comes in the room from a door right behind Hynkel's desk.]]

* Among the structures planned for Hitler's new German capital (a completely rebuilt Berlin to be named "World Capital Germania") included a dome many times larger than any ever built. How it would be built was never fully engineered. The central dome of the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Volkshalle Volkshalle]] was theorized to produce acoustics that would either render any speech unintelligible or magnify a speaker's voice to deafening levels, and would have been large enough to produce its own weather systems and indoor rain as the breathing and perspiration of its occupants precipitated. Since Berlin was built on swampland, the whole building would have sunk and/or collapsed under its own weight, but Hitler, being Hitler, decided to ignore this fact.[[note]]Hitler's chief architect Albert Speer, as a test of the Berlin soil's ability to hold large structures, had a nearly 13,000 ton concrete cylinder built called the "Schwerbelastungskörper" (heavy load-bearing body) in 1942, to measure how far it would sink into the ground. If it sank less than 6cm, the ground would be suitable for the gigantic buildings Hitler wanted. By the time measurements were stopped in 1944, it had sunk 19cm. After the war, the Allies wanted to destroy the cylinder so the ground could be used for new buildings, but it was too big to destroy without use of explosives and that would've damaged the nearby railroad tracks, so the Schwerbelastungskörper remains to this day.[[/note]] Similarly, the new Reich Chancellery was built to almost comical dimensions, intended to impress visitors in the way parodied in ''TheGreatDictator''. Also planned was a ridiculously huge triumphal arch, more than triple the size of the Arc de Triomphe in Paris...with dwarfing the French arch being the sole purpose for its size.

* Most most movies done by [[Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon Disney]], specially fairy tale-themed features. ''Disney/{{Cinderella}}'' and [[Disney/CinderellaIIDreamsComeTrue it's]] [[Disney/CinderellaIIIATwistInTime sequels]] is the largest offender, specially the King's Palace with its ridiculous high ceilings in rooms and corridors.

This can [[TruthInTelevision actually happen in nature]], as spelunkers can [[http://photography.nationalgeographic.com/photography/enlarge/majlis-al-jinn-cave-photography.html attest]], but even in Speculative Fiction art, this can be exaggerated.

** St. Peter's Basilica in Rome has a dome that's 42 meters in diameter. The rest of the church is... larger. It is the largest Christian church in the world and it's said that if its roof were to be removed, the second-largest church could be lowered inside, and the roof put back in place.

The main reason for its size was to surpass the Pantheon (see below).

** ''Life, the Universe, and Everything'' has Agrajag's shrine to Arthur Dent, which looks just like it was carved out of the inside of a mountain. Because it was.

* In Mary Gentle's ''Orthe'' series, Golden architecture in general seems to have been made of this trope, which is made much more explicit in the second book, ''Ancient Light''. Like Creator/HPLovecraft (whom see), Gentle uses 'cyclopean' in reference to this kind of architecture. The Emperor's throne room, seen in flashback, is poorly lit, so that someone standing in it "cannot see how high the walls are, or how far above is the ceiling of this great hall." It contains "great pillars; yards in circumference, vanishing up into darkness".

* Whenever Creator/HPLovecraft uses the term 'cyclopean', look out for this trope. Used this in flashback in ''The Shadow Out of Time'', with bonus BottomlessPits.
